Shouting like that. Evil old woman. Why does she want to be so sharp? " Then came the sound of our own door creaking back on its leather hinge, the smell of peat smoke, and the soft tail of Sheba the cat brushing against my dangling hand. They dropped me down on the pile of straw in the corner that I used as a bed, and a moment later Granny had shooed them out of the cottage. I was quite back in my wits by then, and I started to sit up. "Stay there," commanded Granny. She was standing over me, frowning as she stared at me.
I was only half conscious again, but I knew it was Mr. Macbean's rough hands painfully holding my arms and the gruff voice of Samuel Kirby complaining as he held my legs. " Granny shouted in the rough, angry voice I dreaded. "Letting her head fall back like that! Trying to break her neck, are you? " Behind me, above the crunch of many feet following us up the beach toward our cottage, I could hear anxious murmurs. "The creature's the size of a kirk! And the tail on it, did you see? It'll stink when it rots.

I could see that Granny was tired and her head was aching, and the anger that always simmered inside her was ready to break out. Her eyes, red from the drink and lack of sleep, narrowed, and she thrust the basket into Mr. Macbean's hands. "Take him, then. It was a favor I was doing you, to protect him from evil. " Mr. Macbean put the basket gently down on the ground and bent to lift his son out of it.
